Since 2006, the Hear the World Foundation has been committed to improving the quality of life and promoting equal opportunities for children with hearing loss in low- and middle- income countries.

Hearing Health Value Chain

We strive to develop sustainable programs in low- and middle-income countries, with scaling potential for replication in other regions within the country to serve as models for audiological care. To achieve this aim, we fund and collaborate with local aid organizations. Our guiding principles are summarized in the «Hearing Health Value Chain»:


We focus on programs based on a holistic approach, comprising the core components of the Hearing Health Value Chain. Every single step is essential to the improvement of communication, social integration and quality of life for children with hearing loss. Our efforts focus on supporting local partners, building capacities in terms of expertise, training, equipment use, and process-oriented work.
